Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HersheyMama Very nice hotel
We spent a week here from Nov 1-8, 2013. Had a very enjoyable stay in a two room suite. Rooms were clean and had fresh towels and lotions/shampoos, etc. each day. Pool was very nice. Jimmy's Fish House had good food. But don't go close to closing hours - took over half an hour to get a sandwich. Had live music each night. Enjoyed sitting out on balcony listening, even if pretty loud. Staff at front desk were very helpful. Walk to beach was pretty far. Walked first time, drove after that. Chairs and cabana were expensive to rent. Enjoyed the pier 60 at sunset. Would definitely come back!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy1001 Best Place Around!!
We have been here several times. Each time is better than the last. This past vacation we had an issue with a man the WAS NOT staying at the hotel coming in and he was drunk and was hitting on my teenage daughter. Security was right there and took care of the problem as well as got the police involved. I was soooo impressed with the security there and the staff that was keeping me updated on what was going on. Like I said..every time we go here it is a new experience but is ALWAYS a good experience. Every aspect of this Hotel is great!!! We are already looking at when we can come back and stay this summer. I love family vacations that you can fell relaxed, safe and have the time of your life!!!! Great job Holiday Inn Staff!!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SensitiveEars Don't plan on 'early to bed'
Too much noise from main street ("Island View") side of hotel to sleep before midnight. Hallways inside too narrow, very echo-ey, making for very loud noise on inside of hotel too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joanne02 Our 4 Day Stay!!
Overall, we had a wonderful stay at The Holiday Inn. Our only complaint is that you need more waitresses and cooks at "Jimmy's Restaurant. We found the service very slow. However, the food was great!! I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Room was excellent with Gulf view that was great! However, our room was above the outdoor band stand and a one man entertainer performed every night until 11:00!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Libby829 Great Experience
This was a wonderful place to spend a long weekend. Wish we could of stayed longer. The hotel staff were friendly, professional and very helpful. Clean, great views....
The restaurant attached to the hotel was great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The seafood Cocktail is a MUST! Will the restaurant manager came over to ensure everything was going well. The wait staff were all great throughout our stay. Get a table early to enjoy the sunset. The hotel and restaurant count down the time till sunset. Just a happy place.
The sunsets are the best I can image in the state of Florida.
A short walk away the most beautiful beach every. The pool at the hotel was clean and the perfect temperature.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Froggietd Great environment - horrible bed!!!
The hotel is nicely decorated and a lot of fun. The hotel bar and restaurant is definitely worth going for. My bed was extremely uncomfortable and I did not get any sleep, but other patrons did not experience a problem.

Multiple places to eat near by. Great view from the pool of the open water. No beach. That is the only downfall.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by larla527 My Stay
Unfortunately I have experienced many unpleasent stays in my past, not to mention being a perious Holiday Inn employee I somewhat put hotel quality and the staff to a high expectation and this property definately met the expectation!
Both my roommate, who also is an ex-employee of HI, and I thought this was a great exerpereince! The only thing that was not up to par was our toliet, which ran and leaked. We let the front desk know, so hopfully it got fix upon our departure.
Housekeeping was great, the room was very clean they were very friendly and the towel made animals each day that greeting us when we would return from the pool was a great extra touch, we love it! We felt loved!
Thanks for a great stay and hope to see you again!

Great Location. Had to pay for parking but still a value compared to surrounding areas. We could walk to the beach and many restaurants and shops. Great restaurant onsite and a beautiful view of the ocean.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shamus27 Nice people, nice service, nice hotel!
We just wanted to say "thank you" for a great experience at your hotel. We visited Clearwater Beach to watch the beautiful sunset and we got that and more. The food and atmosphere at Jimmy's were wonderful and the service was excellent - especially Julie and Sydney. Your front desk employees were so professional and accommodating. We'll be back.

My husband had work in Florida and I came for relaxation. It just happened to be our 28 year Anniversary as well. We had a blast! The staff were so friendly and fun and the sunsets were amazing. It had been many years since our last visit to Florida. We had forgotten what a wonderful state it truly is. we are already planning another trip.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Petdog Great Location for relaxation
Not on the main beach, has it own slice of semi private beach. Lots of shells at low tide and nice white powder sand to build a sand castle for children. Rooms and Pool clean, restaurant excellent. What more could you ask for? Sunsets and boat watching from pool deck is fun. Overall a great atmosphere to relax after business or while on vacation.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hlezotte Not far from the beach
The hotel is what you would expect for a Holiday Inn. The location is NOT on the beach so you will need to walk a few blocks down to stick your toes in the sand. We had difficulties with the WIFI during our entire stay. It wouldn't connect, then if it would, it would kick us out right away. If you need WIFI, this is not the hotel for you. We heard other guests indicating the same issues.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ripcord enjoyable and fun place to stay
We definitely enjoyed our stay. Not sure if it was a "good value" tho. We faced the ocean, but the hotel has no beach. Had to walk a couple of blocks to get to the public beach access. It also seems petty to charge guests for parking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GreatViews Great Place, Terrific Value
I've stayed here off and on over the course of the spring and summer. The staff has always been cordial, helpful and efficient, and the front desk folks greet me by name. There is a Tiki bar poolside, and a very nicely equipped separate deck facing the Gulf which is perfect for sunbathing, watching the sunset, or relaxing to the nightly live music. The Holiday Inn is the best value on the beach when you consider the price and amenities. The hotel is located on Clearwater Beach which is a resort area. People come here to have fun which often results in some amount of noise. I am dismayed that there are people who are unaware of this global phenomenon. My one criticism is that there are not enough electrical outlets in the rooms. If you have more than two electrical items, you might want to consider bringing along a power strip.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HOLIDAYBLUES2013 great place not so great people
I will start off with never GO HERE during hoilday weekend. the hotel it self was nice and clean. the front desk clerks was no help and rude. I called ahead to question if i need a parking pass for my guest i was told the lot was full and if I have not checked in I may not even have a spot to park. shocked due to I paid for parking with my room. Than when I asked was thee a near by parking lot where we should park in that case of no parking. i was told" i dont know maam thats not my job" . Once there i went to check in and was advised that my room wasn't booked for the window beach view, as I requested and due to holiday there was no more open rooms. after being told there was nothing i can do i was stuck in a room where im on roof top and have a view of maintenance cleaning the roof. after a long day of kids and beach we go inside to sleep its a party next door where the screaming at each after midnight.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Inspector1 Great people, great service, great food, thank you all!
First of all I am a professional property efficiency inspector for an international engineering sustainability company. I have a family of certified chefs. I travel daily and stay in 2 to 5 hotels every week. I eat in several Restuarants weekly. I have become very critical of the facilities, services and food as I live and work with professionals that provide top quality products and services at a reasonable cost with a smile. This hotel exhibited the behavior that I expect and rarely find!
Everyone went out of their way to help us with everything. Recommendations for dinner, pleasantly surprised with on site Jimmy's Fish House! Great service at the bar, Sean and Jay are a great team, taking care of all customers regardless of where they were!!! Great team work!!! Great food priced fair!!! Sean makes a great Cosmo martini, wife is happy, when mama's happy everyone's happy!!! Thank you Sean!!! Met the owner Jeff in the lounge, what a wonderfull person. He was sitting with friends and included us in their conversation as we watched the sunset! What a nice experience! Every employee we saw greeted us pleasantly every time!!! We can't wait to go back, planning next run so we can stay again! I have never said that about anyplace before!!! I really hope to find more places like this in my travels??? Thank you Jeff and your team for a great experience!!! You guys are a 10

The hotel is very nice and we enjoyed our stay. I am a Platinum member and this is the only hotel that has ever charged me to upgrade my room, the price went from $40 to $50 plus tax. I also thought it was odd to pay for parking in an unsecured parking lot.

From the welcome phone call to the free drinks provided to rewards members, my experience was wonderful. Even over the busy labor day weekend, I felt attended to. We also enjoyed the live music at Jimmy's and beach bars near the pool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pelch34 Really pay to be at the beach...Bush League?
Trust me, I have been a loyal customer of the IHG partners for awhile and since I have Platinum status I have never paid for parking until I stayed with this establishment. When I ask to have that comped I was told "it was impossible as it was beach parking." I wasn't going to make a big deal as it was $12 whole dollars, but my response was "I've stayed at locations on beaches and on rivers and other various desitnations". My point being that I already pay a higher price to stay at a location like this and that is understandable I know that going in to it. But as a loyal, weekly traveling member of your progam, there should be some perks. For this stay I got nothing, there was no water bottle or snacks, no free newspaper at my door. I paid for one of the most expensive rooms there, and you still charge me $12 to park my car...BUSH LEAGUE. Needless to say it only takes one sub standard experience to make a customer look elsewhere...guess what, I won't be back to your place and I will be looking at other businees for my weekly travel. Again, it's not the money, it's being treated as though you are respected for your loyalty.
